TTM Success: Ed Watt

Another TTM that was languishing in my draft folder for nearly 9 years.  I sent this extra '74 Topps card of him and he signed it in thin blue Sharpie.

Ed Watt was a relief ace for the Orioles during their golden years from '66 thru '73.  He never started a game in the majors after his rookie year in '66 and his Orioles ERA was a tidy 2.74 over 363 appearances. He also wasn't a terrible batter (for a pitcher) when he got the chance.  Nearly half of is at-bats were in the aforementioned '66 season.  He carried a .190 batting average for his career.  

Its notable that he has shown up at many of the Orioles on-field special celebrations over the years. 

I sent to Mr. Watt on December 17th, 2014 and got it back on December 28th, 2014 for an 11 day TAT.

  1. I like the headline on his Topps Traded card "Watt's New for Phillies"
